What I wonder is how you can make a column in a list view have a bordered/colored background like the counter in Mail ‘s Mailbox list. iTunes also has this for when you are downloading an item.


I don’t think it’s a separate column with a (rounded) gradient background. These list views probably use custom NSCell’s that also display a count aligned to the right.

Drawing a custom cell should be easy. See for some strategies on how to get data in to the cell (in this case the normal text and the count). – JorisKluivers
